Which of the following represents an appeal to the head?
a. "We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts."
b. "Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies?"
c. "Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable-- and let it come!"
d. "I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!"

    I think the appeal to the head is b. It asks a simple question.

    However, d. has long been an emotional appeal and has stirred people to action for over 200 years.

  • English -

    And with some irony, I wonder what a slave owner meant by saying ...give me liberty, or give me death...
